The most common cause of spinal cord injuries is motor vehicle accidents. Generally, the cause of a spinal cord injury is sudden trauma that fractures or dislocates vertebrae. Spinal cord injuries can result in a wide range of conditions, including:
- Chronic pain
- Blood pressure complications
- Loss of sensation
- Bladder and bowel complications
Extreme spinal cord injuries can result in paraplegia or quadriplegia. Also, victims of serious spinal cord injuries generally have a shorter life expectancy than average.
